FINDING A GOOD THEME:


finding a good theme is VERY important! if you do not have a good theme, most people will not follow you, because a bad theme can make your blog look untidy, ordinary or just plain bad. the most important things to look for in a theme is what others have, how many columns it has, if it includes a banner and what you can change. if you have a personal blog/fashion blog it is best to have a one columned theme, but all other blogs, it’s best to have a multicolumned theme. for a hipster blog, you will most likely find the narnia theme code will be what you want. i will list you a few links at the and of this for themes for other types of blogs. if you have a hipster blog, you will definately want a banner, so it is best, when you start out, to get a theme that includes a banner/logo option (by the time you finish all of these tutorials you will be able to do it without the option!). you will have to see what you can change on the theme, such as colours, amount of columns, banner, background etc.

PUTTING YOUR FAQ AND YOUR ASK ON THE SAME PAGE:

*updated 29.06.12*

so i previously had a very complex way up, but this one works way better and looks much nicer!

to start off, make your new page and put your faq in it as you usually would. 

then press the HTML button as seen below:

a new window will pop up, and scroll down to the bottom. do not delete anything!


you must then copy and paste the following code: 

<iframe frameborder=”0” height=”149” id=”ask_form” scrolling=”no” src=”http://www.tumblr.com/ask_form/[YOUR BLOG NAME HERE].tumblr.com” width=”100%”></iframe>

and press ‘update’.

you must then save your page and it should work!!

***make sure that your ask is turned on!

UPLOADING YOUR BANNER:


*note, this does not work for all themes. for ones that do not have these options, there will be a harder tutorial soon. message me if you want it now!*

to upload your banner, you must first save it to your computer. you can do this by right clicking on it, and then pressing ‘save image as’. make sure that you save it as a gif file, and somewhere that you will remember it. after you have done this, go to your theme, and there should be two options called something along the lines of ‘background’ and ‘logo’. they will have an ‘upload’ button, and you press the one that is next to ‘logo’. 

there will then be a check box, that says something like ‘use logo’ and you must tick this. 

then it should work! remember to press save!

TUMBLR TIPS:


just some advice on how to gain followers -

  1. have a good theme
  2. be nice to your followers
  3. pick a theme and stay with it
  4. most people start off as hipster and gain lots of followers, then change to fashion/boho/summer/personal (hipster gets the most followers because nearly everyone starts off as it)
  5. pick a theme that suits your blog
  6. follow back
  7. do promos
  8. take part in small promo posts (lists of 5 or 10 so you get noticed)
  9. if a tumblr famous person says ‘they are following back’/’they are promoting all their new followers’ don’t believe it!!
  10. be yourself! no one wants to follow someone who is fake!

ADDING A NEW PAGE:

to add a new page, you scroll down to the very bottom of your theme. it will say ‘PAGES’ and ‘ADVANCED’ with little arrows next to them each. click on ‘PAGES’ and underneath it will say ‘add a page’. after you’ve done this, a little window will pop up. at the moment it says ‘standard layout’. keep it like that (unless you want it to go directly to another page, then press redirect and enter the url of your new page.) now, enter the end bit of the url that you want up the top, the title of your page underneath that, and tick the box in the third rectangle if you want a link to it on your home page. the title of your page will pop up next to this box, and you may change that, as this is what will show up on your home page/header. then enter your text in the large box! if you want to do some html coding, you have to press the little html button (if you can’t find it, go to the faq on ask page tutorial). after you’ve completed your page, press the green ‘save page’ button and the bottom left corner… you will probably have to do it twice. and then remember to press the overall save button!

SPARKLY CURSOR:

to get a sparkly cursor, copy and paste this code into your description box.

to get a rainbow sparkly cursor, copy and paste this code into your description box.

CHANGE YOUR CURSOR:


go to http://cursors-4u.net and fine a cursor that you like, then  there will be a box that says ‘universal css/html code’. you will need to find the code that says http://cur.cursors-4u.net/cursors/*something here* - you copy and paste JUST THAT URL and paste it somewhere safe, such as a word document or in another tab of the internet. then, in your theme’s html, between the tags <body> and </body> (closer to the top, maybe right under so you can find it later?) paste this code: 

{cursor: url(http://cur.cursors-4u.net/others/oth-6/oth589.cur), progress !important;} a:hover {cursor: url(CURSORS URL HERE), progress !important;}

and replace CURSORS URL HERE with the url that you put somewhere safe!

PUT IN A MUSIC PLAYER:

when it comes to music players, a lot of people will say to go to hypster.com, but this is a very bad website, because you cannot get most songs. so go to scm music players and youtube at the same time. when on scm, scroll down and select your skin (colour) and then go to the ‘edit playlist’ tab, or click next down the bottom. in the playlist tab, you will need youtube to search your songs and put in the url in the space in scm. then you will need to put a title for the song. after you have done all the songs, you go ‘configure settings’ MAKE SURE THAT AUTOPLAY IS OFF. a lot of people don’t follow purely because of autoplay music. change all the others to whatever you like and press ‘done’! then there will be a html code, paste it right bellow the <body> tag in your theme.

TEXT EFFECTS:

rainbow scrolling

animated wave

random neon wipe

ADD A BANNER TO A NON-BANNER THEME


go here and upload your banner and copy the url, then:

customize » edit HTML » ctrl + f » ’ {Title} ’ (make sure it is after the <body> tag, there are two) » replace it with ’ <img src=”[YOUR BANNER’S URL HERE]">

CHANGING THE FONT ON YOUR BLOG

to change the font on your blog, you will need decent html/css skills.

first click here to find your fonts.

you can choose as many as you like. make sure that if you want different fonts for your links, text and title you choose them all and they are READABLE. some are hard to read.

after choosing your fonts you can review them and delete the ones you don’t want. 

after you have done this click the use tab (next to the review tab)

scroll down to find two different codes:

copy and paste the one in the blue box right under the <head> tag.

the second lot are different codes on each line. they contain the different font, so in your blogs html search for ‘font-family’ and wherever it comes up, change the part proceeding the colon to the part proceeding the colon from google webfonts.

**make sure that there is a ; after the code is finished**

HOW TO PUT LINKS IN POSTS:

okay so first of all you need to type your word so lets say it’s one of our posts where i link me and madi’s blogs, it will look like this before you start anything:

the next thing you have to do is highlight your word, so first off i’ll hyperlink the word ‘me’ so after highlighting you’ve got to select the link:

then a little box will come up where you can put your link in! the first little box will link the post and the second will create a cool little ‘title’:

and it will turn out like this!!!!
